After the special ‘covers’-album “Kindred Spirits” (2012) Clan Of Xymox strikes back with a new studio-album featuring 12 songs. It’s always exciting to discover new work from such an influential- and leading formation, which remains at the top even after 30 years of commitment.  “Matters Of Mind, Body And Soul” sounds divine, like composed by the hand of God. I don’t want to elevate Ronny Moorings to the level of living God, but the artist again took me by surprise. The album takes off with a wonderful and well-crafted ‘intro’-song from nearly 7 minutes. It sounds dark and flavored with a touch of Eastern mysticism, but it’s first of all the prelude to a genius work.  The songs reflect to typical dark-wave influence of Clan Of Xymox. The harmony between guitar and electronics reaches a real high artistic exposure. The compositions are filled with a sweet melancholic style, reinforced by melodic electro treatments and the passionate vocals of Moorings. Clan Of Xymox takes us back to the essence of new-wave, which is mainly dominated by sound-darkness and dark-poetry. Clan of Xymox clearly invites the listener on a sweet voyage throughout the realms of sadness. It’s a sound format surrounded by shadows from the past. The songs remain rather quiet and inhibited. Ronny Moorings reveals a very intimate part of his creativity, which has been transposed into delicacy. The songs sound like the symbiosis between contradictory elements. Melancholia has never been that evasive. “Matters Of Mind, Body And Soul” is a fascinating trip on, which you’ll experience different cool songs. “She Is Falling In Love” and especially “Hand In Glove” remind me of Depeche Mode in a kind of gothic approach. The 2nd half of the album is dominated by a succession of great cold-wave songs. I here especially want to mention Love’s On Diet” and “Chinese Whispers.” The songs have been sung by a real passionate singer who injects an extra emotional load to the composition.  Conclusion: Clan Of Xymox has released an impressive number of albums and countless memorable songs, but this new work definitely belongs to the few best albums they’ve ever made.You don’t really get the impression that this band is already active for 3 decades. This is just the beginning…
